Fantastic company, wouldn’t go anywhere else! Great customer service and competitive pricing – 5 stars from me!
Outstanding service! The support provided when my husband had an accident in France could not be faulted.
100% confidence in this company. I unfortunately had to make a claim last year when my golf clubs were stolen. The claims process was straightforward and well supported by SportsCover Direct.
First class! Simple, efficient and professional. The whole process was extremely simple from beginning to end.
I have used SportsCover Direct several times now for sports and summer sun insurance. They are first class at covering pre-existing medical conditions.

FCO Travel Advice
Whatever your reason for travelling abroad, you’re sure to want a trouble free trip. Many of the things that often go wrong for travellers can be prevented or made less stressful by taking a few simple precautions. So it makes sense to spend a little time getting prepared before you travel – you could save yourself a lot of problems later on.
With this in mind, we are working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to help British nationals stay safe abroad. The FCO website (gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo) offers straightforward travel advice, top tips and up to date country information to help you plan your holiday.
Make sure you have valid travel insurance, even if you’re only planning a short trip.
Visit your GP at least 6 weeks before you travel to get any vaccinations you might need.
Read up on your destination, including local laws and customs.
Make photocopies of your passport, visas and insurance details and leave a copy with a relative or friend at home.
You can also find handy checklists to use before you set off and whilst you’re away. Plus it’s worth reading up on what the local British Consulate can do to help you if you run into problems abroad – and what they can’t do.
SportsCover Direct working in partnership with the FCO:
If you enjoy travelling abroad and taking part in sports or adventurous activities we highly recommend you take a look at the FCO website. The site provides tips and advice for travellers and ensures you are armed with all the information you will need should an unexpected problem occur whilst you are abroad. You can visit the site by clicking on the following link. http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad/.
FCO works in partnership with the team here at SportsCover Direct as we have a mutual goal, which is to ensure UK travellers are taken care of whilst travelling abroad by having the right insurance policies in place. Without the correct insurance policy you could end up stranded abroad or forced to pay thousands of pounds for medical expenses if you are injured.
If you plan to participate in any kind of sports or adventurous activities whilst in a foreign country it is imperative that you have an insurance plan to match your needs! as there are many insurance companies that will not cover the costs of your medical expenses if you are injured whilst taking part in a sporting or adventurous activity.
If you already have an insurance policy in place FCO GOV along with SportsCover Direct strongly advise you to check the small print of your insurance policy before setting off on your travels, to ensure you are covered for all activities you plan to participate in whilst abroad.
